STA, 30 August 2020 - Slovenia registered 31 new cases of coronavirus on Saturday, a figure which marks a decline over the previous two days but is still fairly high for a weekend day. A total of 738 tests were conducted.
Just over 4% of all tests were positive, which is significantly higher than earlier in the week but still broadly in line with the trend since mid-August, according to data from the coronavirus tracker covid-19.sledilnik.org.
There are now estimated to be some 450 active cases in the country, with 24 people in hospital with Covid-19, one more than in Friday, and two in intensive care, the same as the day before.
New cases were recorded in 16 municipalities yesterday. The highest numbers were confirmed in Ljubljana (8) and Tržič (3), with two each in Šentjur, Kranj, Rogaška Slatina and Slovenske Konjice.
Serbia moved to yellow list, Croatia remains red-listed
STA, 30 August 2020 - Serbia is no longer on the red list of high-risk countries as of Sunday and has been moved to the yellow list, having more than 40 infected persons infected with coronavirus per 100,000 inhabitants. Croatia remains on the red list, so quarantine is still required for most travellers returning from the country.
There is a quarantine requirement for travellers from countries on the yellow list as well, but there are many exemptions.
There are no changes on the green list of 19 countries seen as being less dangerous. Almost all are in Europe.
The government made the decision on Saturday after assessing the epidemiological situation in the EU countries, Schengen zone, the Balkans and Italian regions, and the criteria for classification of countries based on the epidemiological situation of the National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ).
The cabinet also reviewed the Covid-19-related procedures at the border, and check points inside the country, and decided that the current regime will remain in place.
